Botswana offers an unforgettable experience for those travelling to this southern African nation. Here are some insights on how you can enjoy a truly rewarding holiday.
When it comes to accommodation in Botswana, there is much to choose from. If you are after a central location, look to be based at one of the hotels in Gaborone, Botswana, the country’s capital. As you venture further out, you can also stay at safari lodges or campsites at certain game reserves.
Thrilling Wildlife Safaris
One of the best things to do in Botswana is to embark on wildlife safaris; you can view lions, elephants, giraffes, leopards, hippos, antelopes, crocodiles, wildebeest and more! The Mokolodi and Gaborone reserves near Avani Gaborone Resort & Casino are worth visits as are the Moremi Game Reserve, Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park.
Those who love the great outdoors can join a Botswana camping safari or book a 4WD vehicle and embark on their own adventure. Look forward to camping under the stars beside an open fire as you listen to the sounds of wildlife carried on the night air. For something different, traverse the waterways of the Okavango Delta and camp and its many islands.
Experience the Kalahari
You can also plan to explore the hauntingly beautiful Kalahari Desert which is truly awe-inspiring. It has many attractions to see as well; view black-maned Kalahari lions at the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, ancient baobab trees at the Nxai Pans National Park and the stunning salt flats of the Makgadikgadi Pan.
